While few global firms dominate the whole advertisement industry, they are now facing a challenge disrupted by the blockchain technology. User-generated data are a key ingredients to personalized ads. Blockchain enables users to control their data by themselves and make a revenue from that data. This is precisely the way AIRBLOC decentralizes the ad industry with blockchain.
AIRBLOC is building a decentralized and transparent ad data marketplace where users are able to sell their data to advertisers directly. The main challenge is how we can trust the quality of users' data. As a unique solution, the AIRBLOC credit rating system measures credit of user data and promotes users to submit reliable data. Also, the team has plenty of seasoned programmers and experience in the ad industry, for example, they have experienced DMP (Data Management Platform) implementation project. That's the reason why I believe they can realize decentralized ad data marketplace on top of blockchain.

The AIRBLOC Network transforms individual users from passive objects to active subjects in the advertising market. This user-led data market will not only overcome market’s structural limitations, but also will maximize the value of the data.
Having witnessed ab180’s past journey closely, I am confident that this blueprint will surely turn into a reality. They have proven themselves by solving various problems in the advertising market through focusing on the essence, technological power and strikingly strong execution power. We are looking forward to seeing how the AIRBLOC Network, accompanied by Team ab180’s competence and passion, will transform the existing advertising market.

The Ad Data Marketplace is one area where blockchain can be applied with good confidence.
AIRBLOC aims to formulate a decentralized and transparent data transaction network when the market is now dominated by a limited number of centralized giants. Based on this innovation, the user can reclaim data rights on control and its actual value. At the same time, advertisers can run reasonable ads with effectiveness.
The AIRBLOC team is composed of capable programmers in the field. This young team is also very experienced with many projects closely related to the advertising market. Most importantly, they have a clear mission to achieve decentralization, backed with passion and initiative. I admire and support their journey wholeheartedly, which is progressing each day.

The advertising market continues to democratize itself. This is applied to data market as well. AIRBLOC Network is located at the intersection to the two.
Innovative services change the the rules of the world at once. Only a few can be successful. However, most of the successful services can put a trigger on established rules. This trigger can only come from a giant’s shoulder, not toes.
The AIRBLOC Network owns the potential to grow into a service that can democratize the advertising and data market through ICO, a democratization of the capital market. Indeed, the blockchain technology has many limitations and challenges to overcome. I am pleased to join the team with AIRBLOC Network for its ongoing monumental experiment.

It was once said that “If the service is free, then it is you that is the product”.
For more than the last two decades, the revenue from ad industry is the tsunami wave of money that has driven the rise is the centralised multinationals now controlling all our personal data. But the tide is turning.
Europe is soon regulating private user data and this legislation will reverberate globally. Furthermore the recent controversy with Facebook and Cambridge Analytica has clearly seen a breach in the duty of care we imagine for all our user data.
The outcry from this is the clarion call to action and I believe that blockchain’s distributed, immutable and transparent nature must represent the future of our user data. AIRBLOC is perfectly positioned to help users understand, control, defend and monetise their own data and tokenize this network.
